A winning combination of healthy eating and convenience.

Here's an ideal combination: a tasty meal, nutrition for good health, and the convenience of a slow cooker. The Healthy Slow Cooker offers more than 100 delicious, nourishing recipes that are healthy and contain key nutritional, health and wellness information. Along with a complete nutrient analysis, each recipe will feature:

  • An icon denotes vegan friendly recipes
  • "Mindful morsels" that highlight particular nutritional elements
  • "Natural Wonders" that provide an a overview of a dish's healthful benefits

For example, Indian-Style Chicken with Puréed Spinach provides 400% of the daily requirement of Vitamin K, and cumin in the recipe improves digestion. Here's a small sampling of the tantalizing array of recipes:

  • Creamy Polenta with Corn and Chilies
  • Moroccan-Style Lamb with Apricots and Raisins
  • Ribs 'n' Greens with Wheatberries
  • Winter Vegetable Casserole
  • Cranberry Pear Brown Betty
  • Indian Banana Pudding

For diabetics, the book features a separate section of useful advice and nutrition guidelines.

100 recipes use the convenience of a slow cooker and are designed to promote good health. Each recipe has key nutritional, health and wellness information, and a complete nutrient analysis. A special section offers advice and guidelines for diabetics.

Each recipe is laid out in a very attractive style. There's a great variety of recipes and each recipe has extra information about some of the ingredients. Plus it gives the nutritional information that is a must these days.
